I've spent 4 years working in a dysfunctional, depressing, and downright soul destroying department and the only thing that has kept me sane is listening to smooth classics from classic FM. It blocks out the screams of supervisors taking out their unrelated problems on their minions, and the sounds of other employees slowly dying inside. It lowers my blood pressure and helps my sleep deprived, overworked, stressed out brain concentrate on the task at hand.... writing up my PhD thesis. Thank you classic FM. I may, in fact, dedicate my thesis to you!

The `smooth' title has been often used, but this is an inspirational choice of music, for its variety of relaxing tunes and a great line up of soloists including Nicola Benedetti, Bryn Terfel, Aled Jones, Julian Lloyd Webber, Renée Fleming, Lisa Gerrard, Vladimir Ashkenazy.

The orchestras include The Royal Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, City of Prague Philharmonic,

The conductors are Herbert von Karajan, Daniel Barenboim, John Eliot Gardiner and more.

Highly recommended.

I've been listening to the Smooth Classics show for several years. The show plays some of the best classical music on radio. Every one of the tracks is beautiful. As the title says, it is indeed the 'ultimate' collection.

I bought this album for my husband, but couldnt bring myself to wrap it for Christmas because I couldnt stop playing it! This is a very beautiful collection of classics, with some surprises including the music from Gladiator and The Mission. I'm not a classical music boffin, but I love this album. I chose it principally because it featured Barber's "Adagio for Strings" which is a favourite of mine, but I have enjoyed all 3 CDs. Oops, I keep forgetting, it's not for me, it's for hubby! I hope he likes it as much as I do.

Some of the pieces are very quiet and have to tune up to higher volume than normal in order to listen to them. Not sure that all the pieces are smooth in fact I found some of them rather depressing after hearing them.

many of the tracks are familiar favourites - good for a long journey to avoid radio channels coming in and out of signal as you motor along. also good for relaxing in your favourite chair with a glass of your favourite tipple to wind down

Product arrived very promptly - always so important!

Music is great and so much better to be able to play your favourite choice of music when YOU want, rather than having to wait for it to be played on the radio!!

Thanks so much for the opportunity and the ease with which I was able to find it on Amazon.

The sound is really quiet, and then there are parts that boom really loudly, so you have to keep adjusting the volume. There are some well-known pieces, but lots of mediocre obscure tracks too. I was looking for pieces that I would recognise from TV ads etc. I have now bought 'the most relaxing classical album in the world...ever' which is more what I was looking for.
